Gronk on Jeremy Lane's comments: 'Everyone's entitled to their opinion'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/23/15) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski responded Friday to comments made by Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane, who indicated Gronkowski was not that good of a player. Although, Gronkowski chose not to fire back at Lane and offered a very mild response.
"Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion," Gronkowski said, per ESPN. "They’ve got a great defense overall. We’ve got to be worried about their whole defense. We’ve got to be sure we practice hard, prepare hard all week so we’re ready to roll."
Lane was not as reserved when asked Thursday what makes Gronkowski such a good player.
"I actually don't think he's that good," Lane said. "He's OK. He does have a big body. But from what I've seen on tape, he doesn't like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won't catch that many balls."
Gronkowski had a pretty good season in 2014, totaling 82 catches for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns, and he remained one of the best tight ends in the NFL. It didn't appear Friday he was too bothered by Lane's comments.
"I just keep doing what I’ve got to do." Gronkowski said. "I’ve just got to keep working hard at practice, keep bringing it at practice, keep preparing. Just keep getting ready, because it’s not just one player on their defense, there’s 11 guys out there at the same time. It’s not just 11, they’ve got the backups, too. So I’ve got to prepare for their whole defense, no doubt about that.
"I’ve got much respect for the Seattle Seahawks throughout their whole team. Just got to keep working hard and practicing and getting ready for the game. Bring it out there on the field."
Seahawks' Lane doesn't think Rob Gronkowski is 'that good'

|(1/22/15) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski led his team with 1,124 receiving yards on 82 receptions while scoring 12 touchdowns en route to a first-team All-Pro selection, but Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane said Thursday he doesn't think Gronkowski is "that good," the Seattle Times reports.
"I actually don’t think he’s that good," Lane said. "He’s OK. But he does have a big body, and from what I’ve seen on tape, he don’t like your hands being put on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won’t catch that many balls as he should."
Asked if getting his hands on Gronkowski would be the key to success, Lane said, "That’s always our key every week. Put our hands on the receivers. That’s definitely an issue with him from watching tape so far."
Lane, who was on the short-term injured reserve with a groin injury during the season, played in just seven games during the regular season. He served as the team's nickelback in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers, playing 55 of the team's 73 defensive snaps.

Bennett had the best season of his career in 2014. He totaled 90 catches for 916 yards and five touchdowns -- all career highs -- in 16 games.
Patriots' Rob Gronkowski held in check during win
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/18/15) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was held in check during the team's win on Sunday against the Colts.
Gronkowski didn't catch his first pass until the third quarter. The Colts clearly made an effort to take him out of the game, and were mostly successful, but it didn't help the final outcome. Gronkowski did find the end zone, picking up a 5 yard touchdown catch in the third quarter. He finished with three receptions for 28 yards. Gronkowski did have eight targets, finishing second on the team.
Gronkowski will take on the Seahawks in the Super Bowl in two weeks.
Rob Gronkowski surpasses 100 yards receiving in win over Ravens
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/10/15) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had seven catches for 108 yards and a touchdown in New England's 35-31 win over the Ravens Saturday.
Quarterback Tom Brady found Gronkowski on goal line when he ran a slant route for a touchdown. It was the fourth time this season Gronkowksi surpassed 100 yards receiving in a game and the second time he has done it in the playoffs in his career.
|For the second year in a row Rob Gronkowski will enter the season with questions about his health. Last year, Gronkowski was coming off back surgery and problems with his forearm, and he missed the first six games of the 2013 season. He looked like the Gronkowski of old upon his return until a torn ACL in Week 14 ended his year, and now he's making yet another injury comeback. All signs point toward Gronkowski being ready for Week 1, but we won't know his status until training camp. Still, based on his talent level, Gronkowski is worth drafting as your No. 1 tight end. He had 39 catches for 592 yards and four touchdowns in seven games last year. If you project that over 16 games, Gronkowski would have finished with 89 catches for 1,353 yards and nine touchdowns. Those stats would have placed Gronkowski No. 2 at tight in Fantasy points behind Jimmy Graham in a standard league. Of course, Gronkowski has now played just 18 games over the past two seasons, so he's become an injury risk. But he's still worth the gamble with a pick in Round 4 at the latest because when he plays, he dominates.
